FRIDAY 6 SEPTEMBER // Doors open 6pm // Film Starts 7:30pm

We’re kicking off the 60s weekend celebrations this year with an unmissable screening of Midnight Cowboy. This cult classic was ground breaking for its time and was not without it controversy.

Convinced of his irresistible appeal to women, Texas dishwasher Joe Buck (Jon Voight) quits his job and heads for New York City, thinking he'll latch on to some rich dowager. New York, however, is not as hospitable as he imagined, and Joe soon finds himself living in an abandoned building with a Dickensian layabout named Enrico "Ratso" Rizzo (Dustin Hoffman). The two form a rough alliance, and together they kick-start Joe's hustling career just as Ratso's health begins to deteriorate.


Superb performances and a compelling script have made this film a strange mix of Oscar-winner and Cult Classic.

Dingy and foreboding but nonetheless full of life, this movie was one of the year’s top hits and won three Oscars, for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Screenplay (Waldo Salt).
